Too much is at stake to guess about the best approach and strategy for fighting your denied insurance claim — years and years of financial security.
After spending years representing insurance companies, we don’t guess. We know their playbook and how they work behind the scenes. Using that knowledge, we’ve developed our own Clear Advantage Process for fighting claims.
It’s personally satisfying to use what I’ve learned as an insurance company insider, now for the good — helping families reverse unfair denials of insurance benefits they paid for, need and deserve.
Price McNamara began his law practice in 1990 representing insurance companies.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara founded McNamara Law Offices, where he represents people across the U.S. who are wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance, life insurance, and accidental death insurance benefits, with special focus on ERISA claims and lawsuits.
His is a member of the Louisiana and Texas Bars, with office locations by appointment only in Baton Rouge, Metairie, and Houston. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with his wife and their three children.
“Price showed no fear. The only thing I can use to actively describe what I saw that day in court was someone standing there protecting our family and fighting for them at the same time…he took control of the situation and was truthful.”
“It was a smooth process. I didn’t have to guess about what was going to happen next…I was reassured that he was going to do the right thing. I was reassured that he was looking out for me.”
“He was ready to fight for me…I felt like he had my best interest in mind. It wasn’t just for the paycheck at the end.”
“Price worked for an insurance company in the past and now he’s working against the insurance company so it was because of that we trusted that he knew how an insurance company worked and how to fight them.”
“I feel blessed that I can help turn things around for my clients who have been denied that piece of mind of financial stability and we make sure that the insurance company and the court realize that these are actual people, these are families that are suffering greatly.”

My client’s cause for an ERISA accidental death and dismemberment denial lawsuit began when both Esther and her husband were involved in a tragic head-on collision with an 18-wheeler. This tragic accident resulted in severe injuries to Esther, as well as David’s untimely death.
Our client, a young husband with two children, sustained closed-head brain injury as a result of an automobile accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay, but shortly before trial, agreed to pay the entirety of its insurance policy limits of $2,000,000.
Our client was a floor hand and Jones Act seaman who suffered a shoulder injury while working for Blake Offshore, LLC. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. Blake and its insurance company offered relatively little in settlement, so the case proceeded to trial.
Our client sustained a fractured hip and reduced ability to earn wages in the future as a result of an accident sustained on the offshore drilling rig to which he was assigned. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans.

If an insurance company is going to deny you long-term disability benefits, it has to send you a letter indicating the reasons for that denial. In some cases, you may not have attached the necessary documentation for you to be eligible for disability benefits.
In the denial letter, you should look for the specific reason or reasons why your claim was denied. Then, when you appeal your case, you can address all of those concerns, in hopes of obtaining the benefits you need.
In addition, you should review the letter for information about filing your appeal. The letter will spell out the time deadlines and explain the specific procedures which you must follow in order to appeal a benefits denial. An experienced Fort Worth long-term disability appeals attorney can ensure that you have fully complied with all of the requirements, increasing your chances of being successful on appeal.
There are several ways in which you may be able to appeal a long-term disability denial. First, you could file an administrative appeal, in an attempt to obtain your benefits that way. When filing an administrative appeal, it is essential that you do so on time and that you include all of the relevant medical records and documentation pertaining to the illness or injury from which you suffer.
In addition to showing that you are unable to work, the documentation must also support that you have a long-term illness or injury. If the current medical documentation does not support that finding, then you will need to get a doctor on board who can assist you with proving your disability claim.
After you have exhausted your administrative appeals, the other option is to file a lawsuit in federal court against your insurance company. In that lawsuit, you would name your insurance company as a defendant and sue the insurance company for the long-term disability benefits that you are seeking.
One of the downsides to pursuing litigation in federal court is that it is time-consuming and often takes a while to resolve. A Fort Worth long-term disability appeals attorney can review all of your options with you and help you decide on the most appealing option for the circumstances of your case.
Appealing a long-term disability denial can be difficult, but the process is made much easier if you have an experienced lawyer on your side, assisting you during every step of the appeal. Lawyer J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can help you every step of the way.
